Instead of admitting that Heller knocked down a ****load of liberal gun regulations in Washington DC, you anti-gun people cling to one small snippet of that ruling you feels gives you license to ban whatever you like.
The Heller ruling ruled that trigger lock laws are unconstitutional. You can't ban willy-nilly.
The point is,as the ruling stated"machine guns & the like can be banned",the only point is that certain types of guns ie ARs can be banned/regulated. The 2nd amendment isn't absolute.
I never discounted what the ruling allowed,but you are taking one snippet of the ruling and acting as if it's all there is in the ruling.
